Skype has become one of the top ways to communicate with people outside of the office. It’s easy to use, free to set up, and extremely clear (with the right connection). It’s also a great way to conduct a job interview, particularly during the initial stages of the selection process.
So if you’re not using Skype in the workplace yet, you may be considering whether or not it’s a worthwhile investment.
Should I use Skype?
Skype is one of the most convenient ways to start the interview process. Once you have posted a vacancy and received a steady stream of resumes, you can then begin filtering through the Yes’s from the No’s.
Making the process easier
Many recruiters go through one, two, three or even four rounds of interviews before making a final decision. But once you reach the interview stage, the last thing you want is to be spending hour after hour in the interview room sifting through the good from the bad candidates.
One of the best ways to make the process quicker and easier is to conduct Skype interviews.
Skype interviews will...
· Facilitate the interview process
· Save you valuable business time
· Improve business productivity
· Help you reach a decision much quicker
· Save money on bills
· Share documents with the candidate
· Create a natural experience that is as close to face-to-face as possible
